Jo Plummer, founder of specialist tour operator Tropic Breeze, gives her top ten reasons to pick the Caribbean as a honeymoon destination.
The Caribbean is blessed with what many believe to be the best climate in the world and is one of the few places in the world where warm, sunny weather is almost guaranteed all year round. Temperatures remain fairly constant throughout the year between 24 – 30°C, perfect for relaxation or activity.
Pristine palm-fringed beaches and crystal clear waters, with an average sea temperature of 27°C which varies very little throughout the year. Spend your days on a beautiful stretch of soft white sand, cooling off in the turquoise sea and trying your hand at watersports.
If you would like to spend time snorkelling or scuba diving then the Caribbean will not disappoint as there is a spectacular underwater world to discover. The region’s seas are home to about 9% of the world’s coral reefs which support over 1000 fish species and mammals including whales and dolphins.
The entire Caribbean archipelago covers a vast area and comprises thousands of islands, islets and cays. Each of the island nations has its own character with wonderful varied landscapes, lush tropical vegetation, fantastic wildlife and unique cultures.
Island hopping is in many ways the perfect honeymoon as it allows for a multi-centre holiday which will tick all the boxes! Travelling between islands can be relatively quick and allows you to experience a variety of landscapes and cultures.
Good food on honeymoon is crucial and the Caribbean cuisine will certainly excite the tastebuds! Enjoy delicious fresh seafood caught just moments before, traditional meat dishes such as Jerk chicken, and a wide variety of locally grown vegetables flavoured with distinctive spices.
World famous rum cocktails! What can be more romantic than enjoying a sundowner before dinner, taking in the stunning sunset views from your private plunge pool?
A unique, “chilled” vibe resonates across the islands. The Caribbean is renowned for its wonderfully laid-back atmosphere and as a result the region attracts a vast range of visitors including royalty and celebrities, all looking for somewhere they can really relax and unwind.
Music is considered food for the soul in the Caribbean so wherever you stay there will nearly always be some form of musical entertainment, either at the hotel or close by.
A fantastic selection of seriously good hotels and resorts. Whether you are looking for a peaceful adults-only retreat or a charming boutique hotel, a private island hideaway or a luxurious resort, you will be able to find your perfect honeymoon destination in the Caribbean!
It is no surprise that the Caribbean is considered to be one of the best honeymoon destinations in the world – visit the islands once and you may find that you join the many travellers who end up returning to the region year after year!
